Think of Endless Forms as a sort of "secret lives of orchids" show.

Orchids are the sexiest plant in the botanical world. Their shape even mimics reproductive organs (true story). If the orchid were a movie star, it would be Marilyn Monroe (by comparison, that potted ivy in your office is Kevin Bacon — everywhere and unremarkable). Find out more —and see some incredibly rare specimens —at Endless Forms, the Selby Botanical Garden’s 2018 orchid show. Oh, and keiki? It’s the Hawaiian word for a baby orchid that’s the result of asexual reproduction. Plants are kinky, y’all.
